Jozini Phase 1A: Pongolapoort Bulk Water Supply Scheme, 29 August 2014


The Jozini ngwavuma Water Supply Project is located in the local municipality area of Jozini under uMkhanyakude District Municipality (UDM). It forms part of a much greater project which was the subject of a comprehensive feasibility study (completed in 2009) which extends from Jozini in the south, to the Mozambique border in the north. The western boundary of this area was formed by the Pongolapoort Dam and the Swaziland border and the eastern boundary is formed by the Pongola River to the south, and the boundaries of the Shemula Water Supply Scheme to the north.

The primary focus is to supply potable water to rural communities within the Jozini Local Municipality located in the uMkhanyakude District Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal. The project aims to increase the production of potable water and to install bulk water and reticulation networks in the area. The purpose of the project is to ultimately supply potable water to a population of 134 864 people (approximately 16,200 households), allowing for an average consumption per capita of 60 ℓ/c/d and a 30-year time horizon.
